About the Author:

April Pulley Sayre is the award-winning author of dozens of books, including MEET THE HOWLERS!; TURTLE, TURTLE, WATCH OUT!; and ONE IS A SNAIL, TEN IS A CRAB, an ALA Notable Book. She lives in South Bend, Indiana.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-Sayre follows in the wake of a female loggerhead from her birth on a Florida beach to the day, many years later, when she returns to the same place to lay her own eggs. The simple text describes how the creature narrowly avoids many of the life-threatening dangers faced by maturing sea turtles in today's world. Often, caring humans assist her; for example, a young boy places mesh around a turtle nest to protect the eggs and a boater removes a plastic bag from the water before it can be mistaken for food. Eye-catching, realistic pastel paintings-most of them covering two pages-show sienna and gold sunsets and sunrises, the blue-green underwater realm, and detailed close-ups of the growing loggerhead and other sea creatures. Children will be drawn to the picture of a sea turtle surrounded by sharks on the cover, and to the catchy refrain, "Turtle, Turtle, watch out!" While books such as Brenda Guiberson's Into the Sea (Holt, 1995), Don Patton's Sea Turtles (Child's World, 1995), and Gail Gibbons's Sea Turtles (Holiday, 1995) stress the negative impact of human interference on the sea turtle's survival, Sayre also emphasizes the results of positive actions. Even libraries that already own those titles will want to add this one to their collections.
